In this instructable I will show you how to make Jalapeño beef big plate nachos. These nachos are a great party food for a game night, ultra dance fest or kids birthday party. But they are also delicious for dinner with some rice or french fries.

The main ingredients are tortilla chips, ground beef, onion, garlic, bell peppers, tomato purée, Jalapeño peppers, cheese, salsa and guacamole. You can use store-bought tortilla chips or make them fresh by following my previous instructable. Instead of beef you can also use shredded chicken or vegan tempeh meat.

To make the Jalapeño beef big plate nachos, you start with browning the ground beef. Then you add the other ingredients to let is simmer until the beef is nice and soft.

Warm the tortilla chips and load the beef mixture on top of the tortilla chips. Add tablespoons of roasted tomato salsa on the beef and repeat with the guacamole. Nachos should naturally be covered in cheese, loads and loads of cheese. I used vegan cheese, but you can also try hard shredded Mozzarella or grated Grana Padano. Thats it, the plate is ready to serve.
